Subspecialty in implantology**:
After tooth loss, missing teeth can be replaced by implants (dental implant: a surgical component used to anchor a crown or bridge to the jaw, usually a titanium screw or cylinder that acts as a substitute dental root). Following the insertion of the implant screw, after a short healing period, a crown, for example, is provided. Through the use of implants the stability of the prosthesis is improved and the implant-prosthetic is considerably smaller, lighter and leaves the palate free, similar to the way a bridge works.
Theoretically, it is possible to replace each lost tooth with an implant. With small dental gaps, implantology is a proven concept, but with larger gaps replacing every missing tooth with an implant is not advisable.
According to the scientific gold standard, total tooth loss requires, as a rule, six implants in the upper jaw and four in the lower jaw for a high-quality, implant-supported dental reconstruction. No functional or aesthetic improvement is achieved with considerably more dental implants.
